Evap Coil Replacement


I recently made the decission to repair versus replace the evap coils in my split-systems. The Plenum / Air handler (sheet metal encasement) appears to be butchered and is leaking cold air into my attic. I understand that evap coils are not always easily accessable, but what I don't know is the "standard proceedure" for puting the system back together afterwards. Some folks talk about sheet metal fabrication to close up the evap coil access holes, what I have is a butt load of HVAC tape.

Evap Coil Replacement


It's not clear as to who did the repair on the coil, yourself or a tech.

If the AH is positioned correctly you should be able to remove the coil by removing the AH panels.

So what is the question, how to repair the coil or close the AH?
